Описание: This book provides a survey of the architecture and urbanism of Provence during the Roman era. Provence, or 'Gallia Narbonensis' as the Romans called it, was one of the earliest Roman colonies in Western Europe. In this book, James C. Anderson, jr. examines the layout and planning of towns in the region, both those founded by the Romans and those redeveloped from native settlements. He provides an in-depth study of the chronology, dating and remains of every type of Roman building for which there is evidence in Provence. The stamp of Roman civilization is apparent today in such cities as Orange, Nimes and Arles, where spectacular remains of bridges, theaters, fora and temples attest to the sophisticated civilization that existed in this area during the imperial period and late antiquity. This book focuses on the remains of buildings that can still be seen, exploring decorative elements and their influence from Rome and local traditions, as well as their functions within the urban environment.
Описание: Contemporary architectural theory emphasizes the importance of ‘tectonics’, the term used to articulate the relationship between construction, structure and architectural expression. Despite the term’s currency, little consideration has been given to its origins or historical significance. In this study, Werner Oechslin examines the attempts by early modern theoreticians of architecture to grapple with the relationship between appearance and essence, which is crucial to the discourse of tectonics. Referring to the writings of Joseph Lux, Karl Botticher, and Adolf Loos, Oechslin follows this development from theories of a classical architecture without columnar orders to a Modern architecture upholding the ‘truth’of its own architectural expression. Oechslin locates the culmination of this discourse in the work of Adolf Loos and in Le Corbusier’s frequent references to Ancient Greece as the precedent of Modern architecture’s honesty. This volume includes an anthology of primary texts by several theorists published in English for the first time.
Описание: The volume addresses the hybridisation of knowledge production in space-related research. In contrast with interdisciplinary knowledge, which is primarily located in scholarly environments, transdisciplinary knowledge production entails a fusion of academic and non-academic knowledge, theory and practice, discipline and profession. Architecture (and urbanism), operating as both a discipline and a profession, seems to form a particularly receptive ground for transdisciplinary research. However, this specificity has not yet been developed into a full-fledged, unique mode of knowledge production. In order to dedicate specific attention to transdisciplinary knowledge production, this book aims to explore (new) hybrid modes of inquiry that allow many of architecture’s longstanding schisms to be overcome: such as between theory/history and practice, critical theory and projective design, the adoption of an external viewpoint and a view-from-within (often under the guise of bottom-up vs. top-down). It therefore offers the reader a mix of contributions that elaborate on knowledge production that is situated in the (architectural and urban) profession or practice, and on practice-based approaches in theory.
Описание: This book is about a side of Isaac Newton’s character that has not been examined – Isaac Newton as architect as demonstrated by his reconstruction of Solomon’s Temple. Although it is well known that Isaac Newton worked on the Temple, and this is mentioned in most of his biographies and in articles on the religious aspects of this work, however, there is no research on Newton’s architectural work. This book not only recreates Newton’s reconstruction of the Temple but it also considers how his work on the Temple interlinks with his other interests of science, chronology, prophecy and theology. In addition the book contains the first translation of Introduction to the Lexicon of the Prophets, Part two: About the appearance of the Jewish Temple commonly known by its call name Babson 0434. This work will appeal not only to scholars of science and architectural history but also to scholars of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries’ history of ideas.

Описание: This book describes and accounts for new opportunities for ethical reflection in architecture and adjacent design practices. Bringing together the reflections of an architectural theorist and a philosopher, it explores the possibilities for ethical speculation across their disciplines and respective concerns, aiming for a rapprochement, rather than merger between them.
Описание: Architecture as imprint, as brand, as the new media of transformation--of places, communities, corporations, and people.

Описание: Biophilic and Bioclimatic Architecture is a guide to innovative architectural design for architects, engineers and other specialists who are working with biophilic and bioclimatic architectural concepts. Biophilic and Bioclimatic Architecture has three parts: • Part I focuses on the relationship between architecture and human needs and the creation process, demonstrating the meaning of architectural value in architectural hypothesis. • Part II opens the way towards a new understanding of biophilic architecture as a response to the negative actions of humans and the negative effects of using natural resources. • Part III shows the benefits of combining the effects of the climate with the notion of human comfort in bioclimatic architecture.
Описание: Preoccupation with image and a failure to look at process has led entire generations of architects to overlook transfer technologies and transfer processes. This book argues that the time has come to re-evaluate the basic design and construction methods that have constrained the building industry throughout its history.
Автор: Schumacher, Patrik S. Название: Autopoiesis of architecture ISBN: 0470772980 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780470772980 Издательство: Wiley Рейтинг: Цена: 4620 р. Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ.
Описание: This is the first volume of a major theoretical work by Patrik Schumacher, which outlines how the discipline of architecture should be understood as its own distinct system of communication. (Autopoeisis comes from the Greek and means literally self-production; it was first adopted in biology in the 1970s to describe the essential characteristics of life as a circular self-organising system and has since been transposed into a theory of social systems and communication.) This new autopoeitic approach offers architecture an arsenal of general comparative concepts. It allows architecture to be understood as a distinct discipline, which can be analysed in elaborate detail while at the same time offering insightful comparisons with other subject areas, such as art, science and political discourse. On the basis of such comparisons the book insists on the necessity of disciplinary autonomy and argues for a sharp demarcation from both art and engineering. Schumacher accordingly argues controversially that design intelligence and architecture as a discipline has its own its own internal logic.
Описание: The second volume of a major work outlining how architecture can be understood as a form of communication, this book addresses the major challenges facing architects today. Looking specifically at how architecture seeks to organize and articulate the complexity of post-fordist network society through its language and structure, it explicitly addresses how current architecture can upgrade its design methodology in the face of an increasingly demanding environment. The book explores the role of architecture within contemporary society and its relationship with politics, making it a must-read for architects and architecture students alike.
Описание: Charles Jencks was the first to demonstrate that Modern architecture in the 1960s and 1970s had undergone a profound mutation into three major approaches - Post-Modernism, Late Modernism and New Modernism. He has shown how our pluralist age has oscillated between these and traditional approaches . In this classic title, the thinking and ideas that have informed, and continue to inform the architecture and urban design around us today, was presented as a compilation of writings by the most important architects, urbanists and theorists of the second half of the 20th century. Thew edition brings thinking up to date with additional material that suggests the direction theory is taking into the 21st century.
